. and it's also good for our environment. we've doubled e amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs today building wind turbines, long lasting batteries. today the united states of america is less dependent on oil than at any time in nearly two decades. so now you've got a choice between a plan that reverses this progress as you heard last night. or one that builds on it. the guy who was playing mitt romney said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in taxpayer subsidies every single year. does anybody think that oil companies need a tax subsidy? so we've got a better plan. we're going to keep investing in wind and solar and clean coal and farmers and scientists can harness biofuels to power our cars and our trucks and make our buildings and schools more energy efficient and develop our natural gas that's right beneath our feet and if we do all those things, we can cut our oil imports in half by 2020. we can support hundreds of thousands of jobs all across the country. but you're going to
